Book Text:

After much consideration and
prayer, Grenic conceded to
Elwyean's advice and asked
for his aid, for the
swamplands were immune to
fires kindled by human hands.
The ancient, stoic elf
understood and advised
further that Grenic station
his troops for defensive
purposes, and to destroy the
trolls that dared to flee
toward the forest's borders.
Hesitantly, Grenic agreed,
knowing that the act would
undoubtedly leave a mark on
his soul for judgment in the
hereafter. However, his heart
and convictions were steely
upon his promise to the late
Countess and the protection
of the great city and
everything it stood for.




Elwyean briefly returned to
his people to inform them of
the coming destruction of the
swamp. The elves were on
guard for any trolls that
penetrated Grenic's forces,
though none left the Elddar
to directly aid the human
citadel. Elwyean's return
was heralded in a massive
azure, gold, and red
maelstrom of arcane fires
that erupted across the
swamplands. The magical fire
could be seen for miles
beyond the forest and its
glittering flames raged on
for days. Grenic's forces
destroyed hundreds of troll
warriors and civilians that
fled for their lives.

After twelve long days, the
swamp of Innothule had been



obliterated - the waters
evaporated by the searing
heat of the blaze and even
the most robust of foliage
reduced to pillars of ash.
Elwyean never again returned
to Ardathium or consorted
with Grenic after the battle.
Grenic's fortress was safe,
though the cost of this
victory would weigh heavily
upon the knight's conscience
and soul for the next
several decades.

Summons were sent back to
the pilgrims that had
previously been sent away.
Most returned, though a few
opted to remain in the new
settlements that had begun
to establish upon the
eastern coast of the
continent. All were welcome



back, though Grenic denied a
celebration in the wake of a
time of mourning for what had
been done.
